The St. Louis in Luxe, A Look at 610 Home

Several years ago, I spotted an antique Italian chest while I was travelling overseas.
That piece inspired me and I could never get it out of my head.

The Aura on my St. Louis Cabinet

It actually became the inspiration for the first piece in my line
Nancy Price for Design Legacy, 
I call it my "jumping off point",
and it is one my favorites . . .


My St. Louis Cabinet at market in Atlanta.

Inspired by the antique piece, but injected with a dose of modernity and a turned leg, 
the St. Louis Cabinet is intended to work well in today's traditional yet modern decor and to pair well with modern art.

My St. Louis Cabinet was featured in the Spring 2012 edition of Luxe Magazine, Chicago edition, thanks to the ladies of 

The Spring 2012 Luxe Magazine, Chicago edition

I had the pleasure of meeting these ladies Catherine Conner, Barbara Freeman, and Mary Garver James at market in Atlanta earlier this year, and I am thrilled that they fell in love with my St. Louis Cabinet too, 
selecting it for their feature in the 
Style Makers section of Luxe.

Catherine describes the St. Louis cabinet as 
"the perfect example of taking inspiration from the past and using it to create a modern, sleek, interesting look, 
which we consider the current classic."

Mary picked my line as "one to watch" and thinks I have "a fresh,
 interesting point of view".

Thank you so much.

The ladies of 610 Home in Geneva, Illinois, are inspired by 

Innovative Modern Design
Unique Vintage Finds
Great Art
(Those sound familiar!)

and have created a collaborative store which combines three distinct
 points of view under one roof,
the results being a fabulous, eclectic, urban mix, which often surprises!

If you happen to be in the Chicago area, make sure to visit 610 Home, where the mix of modern, traditional, antique, and vintage are truly inspiring, as design should be. 

In the meantime come and visit St. Louis at the studio here in Jackson.

Happy Mother's Day!

High Point Wrap Up: Hickory Chair and Julian Chichester

We are back from High Point,
and as always it was a whirlwind - 
frantic, furious, fun
and full of fabulous product.

I was thrilled to be introducing
 several new pieces 
to my Nancy Price signature line
 for Design Legacy.

I have taken the artisan approach in my line and am very proud of the
 quality, detail, and craftsmanship 
in each of the pieces and grateful
 to all the individuals 
who put in personal time and effort to bring the products to market.

My Koi Cabinet

Koi Cabinet Detail with eight layers of lacquer!
I am really proud of it!

My tufted saturated BLUE ottoman

My Palm Springs Secretary with lots of door detail

My EMMA BLUE pillows with fabulous embroidered detail

My Aura Banner

My Greek Key Chair

I was thrilled that my 
Greek key chair was selected 
as a hot product at market.

And my line was chosen as a show favorite by
 Studio M as featured on their blog
M Pression!

My line is pictured in spot number eight!

Nicole and I did manage to slip away from my showroom for just a bit to visit a 
couple of my favorite showrooms 
Hickory Chair and Julian Chichester

 One hundred year old Hickory Chair
 is one of my perennial favorites
 and is known for those exact things which I am aspiring to achieve in my line, 
quality, detail, and craftsmanship.

I love their design flexibility and 
all the customization options they offer, 
particularly on the case goods.  

Hickory Chair

My friend Tim Swafford 
from Hickory Chair
had sent me quite a few preview pictures,
but I was happy to browse 
the showroom in person.

Of course I loved this vignette 
with touches of blue.

And I totally adored this vignette with 
saturated blue walls.

One of my New Year's resolutions
was to use more saturated blue like this and in my new ottoman above!

I totally loved the fabrics from Hable's fabric line on some of the pieces.

I have even been thinking pink, well just a touch, and the pinks were pretty and  inspiring.

We do have a touch of pink in the studio!

I especially love these 
Hickory Chair Column Cabinets
that are currently in stock at the studio,
and I am very excited that Hickory Chair is 
customizing the Wabi coffee table for 
a special client.

We currently have these unbelievable column cabinets in the studio, and
the Wabi coffee table is on order for a special client.

And these great stools are
 also in at the studio.

Nicole's pick was the Mercer dining table.

( I find the production process in Hickory Chair's Hickory, NC, production facility fascinating.  To see the process of building

And then we were off to one more favorite, 
Julian Chichester.
Julian and David are always a pleasure!

I especially adored one of Julian's tables and one of his chairs.  We ordered the chair in 
a gorgeous grey velvet for a client.

Yes, it was a whirlwind - 
frantic, furious, fun
and full of fabulous product.
It was High Point!
